In conversation with Gabriella Burnham

At twenty-two years old, Cece Cordell reaches the pinnacle of her career as a ballet dancer when she’s promoted to principal at the New York City Ballet. She’s instantly catapulted into celebrity, heralded for her “inspirational” role as the first Black ballerina in the famed company’s history. Even as she celebrates the achievement of a lifelong dream, Cece remains haunted by the feeling that she doesn’t belong. A provocative and lyrical debut novel from Nicole Cuffy, Dances centers women, art, power, and how we come to define freedom for ourselves. Greenlight is thrilled to welcome Nicole Cuffy and special guest Gabriella Burnham to the Fort Greene stage!
